Evian Christ returns to Parallel, this time for a live concert of his imminently-released debut album, Revanchist (2023), exploring trance's latent potential to evoke, beyond euphoria, the fullest feeling of the sublime. Joining him for the occasion is Torus, a multidisciplinary artist pushing dance music to its very edge with a headier, maximalist approach to sound.
Launched in 2022 with a headline performance at Primavera’s L’Auditori, Revanchist: Live is an expanded A/V presentation of the album's predominant musical and visual themes. Designed in collaboration with lighting designer Emmanuel Biard, the project is the result of a four-year R&D process culminating in the Longinus array — a bespoke, heat compressed 12m fresnel screen comprising twenty-four high power LED projectors with a custom mounting system and optical grade bounce mirrors. The lighting effect produced is breathtaking, and simply must be seen to be believed.
Strobe warning: Evian Christ’s performance — as per the artist's unconditional technical specification — will be supported by upwards of 15kw of unrelenting xenon strobe lighting and arena-grade smoke machines. As such, this show may not be safe for people with photosensitive epilepsy.
